The 50th reunion for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders was truly a first class event.
To be affiliated with such an amazing organization is truly an experience. The professionalism of the Redskins on and off the field will be a hard act to follow.
The directors of the NFL alumna's have decided to do this every 2 years with the next one being in Atlanta.
The venue, (the Gaylord) was exceptional as well as the women who organized it. A huge thank you to Terri Crane-Lamb the current WRCAA President for all of her efforts.
My favorite moment was when I met 2 of the original Redskin cheerleaders, Doris Snyder and Marge Schmidt. They at age 85 were an inspiration to us all. They actually were Majorettes and twirled starting in 1947 and switched to cheerleaders in 1962. Please scan thru the pictures to see the photo.
The tour of the stadium made most of the other teams jealous, ok maybe not those of you in Dallas, but they sure have by far the best facilities I've seen.
The tour of our nations capitol was stunning, despite the heat, it was done in perfect timing.
The slideshow brought tears to my eyes as well as seeing the current redskin cheerleaders perform and realize that I used to move like that and used to look like that!
In the room were some guests like Buddy Hardeman, who was a running-back for the Redskins in 1979, with his wife Cindy Hardeman who was a former redskin cheerleader. In Buffalo that was forbidden.
The Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and the First Lady of Virginia Maureen McDonnell were there to dance the night away. But I am glad that my significant other, Tony Lerma was there to take pictures in the whirlwind of activity.
I couldn't wait to share some pictures.
The Buffalo Bill Cheerleaders will be having their own reunion This weekend and even though I can not be there, I would like them to post pictures of either reunion.
The camaraderie we all have is admirable as well as the amazing memories.
Once a pro cheerleader always a pro cheerleader!!!
